They're saying next Monday so far. We just need to be careful that it doesn't look like a repeat. Might need to manually setup.

REMINDER.

Monday introduced a bit of a plot-hole, though...  Spoilered for those that didn't watch:

True... but the point I was getting at was that there shouldn't be a choice of all or nothing... they already know how to have their cake and eat it to... so if it is possible to disable one and not the other, they should be able to do that, right?

The general gist of the conversation would suggest the exact opposite.  Then were implying--all but said outright--that there is NO selective off switch.  If you turn off the power controlling nanites, you turn them ALL off, including the medical functioning ones.

It's probably possible - after all, people were being kept alive by the technology while the world had electricity.  But I'm guessing that, under current circumstances, such differentiation is impossible or at the very least unavailable.

Guys, spoilers please.  Not everyone is caught up on episodes.  If you want to talk about events from a specific episode please open a thread for that episode.  Thanks.

Sorry about that...  that's why I spoilered my first post and tried to be vague in my other reply.

So I'm still enjoying this however there is one little thing that seems a little out of sorts for me at the moment. It's that it seems they can just walk anywhere they want to go in about a day. I mean Philadelphia to Georgia that quick? Monroe takes a helicopter to their hometown, (anyone catch where that was?), and then Miles walks there in a day? The two walking to "the Tower". Also seemed to get to the Plains nation awfully quick. Sure it all could be taking longer and they're just not showing us those days in between when not much happens but at the very least they should have something that kind of indicates the passage of time and lets us know ok this is a week later or something. Especially when you juxtapose it against the first half a season where they were showing us what happened every day and it took something like 8 or so episodes to get from Chicago to Philadelphia.

Ok so we made it through season one and season two is already assured. Not sure how I feel about how they left it, I guess I'll have a better idea when I see the first ep of season two. Also moving from a 10pm slot to a 8pm slot next season does that indicate they plan on being less gritty and more family friendly in season two? Or do the networks even care anymore what they program when based on when more younger eyes may be on the tube? I supposed these days it's mostly irrelevant anyway.

Unless there is a way to destroy all those missiles in flight it is going to be a lot different next season.

 

I have to agree with you about them showing more and more of whatever they want at whatever time they want to.

On that note, the evening news is usually as much or more than most of the programs.

Every time it comes on they are talking about a killing, rap, robbery, terrible wrecks and fires, etc.

This show parallels Lost in some ways.  That show was successful in rebooting the entire show at the end of the season.  That seems to be what is going on here as well.  Guess Kim Raver is a goner, unless i missed the part where she moved far away ...

I would just like an explanation of how all this stuff miraculously WOKE UP after 15 years of being dormant.

 

If you let a car sit for 15 years, will it start?  No - the gas breaks down - so even if you get a jump start, it won't fire.

 

Jet engines are a LOT more touchy.

 

And missiles?  An ounce of rust will have those things blowing up on the pad even if you HAD the fuel.

 

And the view of the earth with lights coming on?  Who started the generators?  At best, only wind, hydro and solar would work and it was nighttime.

 

I mean, I like the drama, the character development, the premise and many other aspects but "Jeremiah" handled things much more realistically with no lack of drama.

This is network TV, not thinking man's sci-fi.  Network TV is dumbed down for the masses.

I must admit, lights just turning back on as if by magic gave me pause as well, I'm willing to suspend belief for the sake of the story but even for me that was really pushing it! All I could imagine is that the creators of the show just wanted that shot of the lights coming back on across the darkened globe so badly they were willing to overlook all the "picky details" that would actually make it possible.
